clim@ 2020

Over 300 viewers and participants joined the finale of clim@ 2020, a global competition for innovative green enterprises. At the online event on June 2nd, fifteen finalists pitched their solutions for addressing climate change to a jury of experts in climate finance and technology. All five 2020 winners presented strong business ideas to drive the green transformation. The top winners’ ideas included
producing a vegan and eco-friendly leather alternative made from apple waste; a business that designs, installs, and operates 100% solar-powered walk-in cold rooms for outdoor markets and farm clusters to preserve perishable food; a technology-based solution to recover the best possible value out of surplus food; an intelligent platform system for digital shipping packaging creation, and production of biodiesel from used cooking oil.
